49» BROim : We occupy thit little space in your Minutes, to ukyoui few questions : 
Do you take the South H'estem Baptist .' If you do not, httre you a, good reason why you 
do nsrtr You need not plead poverty; for 92 a year is too small a trifie to plead as an excuse. 
Ask your pastors and brethren, who hnve read It for years, of its benefit to personal piety 
and the promotion ef the Cause of Christ. Tour family need the information it imparts. 
■Will you give it to them ? We, its editors, tho' not members in your Body, are well known to 
you. We would like to preach to you in person ; but can only do so through our paper. 
Send on your names. Your pastors will act as agents for us. 
Should yen be in arrears with us, transmit it early, and obUge
